the fascinator

was what rosson wore to my opening, apparently


before you see rosson and her studio and her new love of millinery, you have to walk around stefan simchowitz’ cool new house full of art with me


sorry this one is blurry its a cool brian chippendale piece i sold him a while ago


oh, is that a patrick griffin?
“a patrick griffin”
i will have to learn to say this

can i just say it once?

THE MILT OF THE ANCIENT MARINER
there!

dang me

pat’s new favourite song


so this blog is a long song and a hearty helping and not for the fainthearted or slow internet connectors


it is also a bit all over the place, like fruits scattered in the night


this is the main theme


i made this book of photos of pat for his mom as a present
if you dont like patrick, skip ahead like 20 photos
if you do like patrick, get ready!


























a second book had to be deployed





the many faces of patrick griffin
here is one i like


so after i did that, i stayed up until 4AM making this little dingleberry


this is it up close

if you wanna see the source imagery for these guys there is a huge archive of glitch crap on flickr just type in GLITCH somewhere and things like this appear!


the next morning we got up superearly to look at places to hang our caps
pat was camera shy after the previous night’s lovefest


he says he doesnt want to be on the blog anymore
this is going to prove ‘problematic’


that and lack of sleep and lack of money to move but needing to move to SAVE money which is stupid made me really crabby


what is up with this place?
NEXT


this is really fancy food area


in a cool building on Ridge


hey what’s that out the window, graffiti?
NEXT!


do i want to pee here


do i want to pee here


do i want to pee here


i think there is a chance we will move to this building, even though it is totally ‘uncool’


it has a big backyard and a gym


and a ‘lobby fountain’
patrick is embarrassed of it maybe
to invite people to party with us here


i think our friends are already reconciled to the fact that we are weirdos pat


i am now going to mention some art shows, which was my original intent that i have strayed from
this is for a show Abby is organizing in canada. Queen and Shaw, Vancouver. opening Valentine’s day


these were our contributions


this is happening Feb 5 still
i have all these images but don’t wanna be a spoiler
this won’t spoil it, this will just make you come

there is also an awesome sculpture from Portugal hopefully making it in time

in case any of those dudes are pareusing my blog insteada working on shipping that thing to me!
Dang me!


this is what all my hard paint has been for


anyone in LA come hang out!


this is not art and no one said it had to be: terence is now a model
its cool
maybe now he can invite himself back to his house and try to hump himself
Dang me!
that zing came from Pat who is here at Deitch xeroxin xines

he is the man for United Bamboozled the photos are so cute i could die: http://fashionista.com/2009/01/terence_koh_for_united_bamboo.php


and to end with another endless slew of photos, here is a little WHOOP DEE DOO for you, the holiday party throwers who did their deed anew in cardboard. says jaimie: “we had civil war victims and christian mimes and everything!!!! and our set was just a million pounds of cardboard!! and i think our next project is a totally insane float in a super huge and conservative st patricks day float– we will see what happens…”










that’s all folks!
congrats on your scrolling abilities

our new swim caps made my day! now if we could just afford to continue our YMCA membership we are all set!


intermittent snows and layers of scampering all weekend


pat and i are thinking of changing neighborhoods and made a PRO CON list and graffiti fit into it somewhere


loss of “local colour” figured prominently


primarily the locol colour “mail order monsters green”


but all the apartments are lame or have weird issues like this one came wtih a neighborhood full of watchful extended family vigilante italians to watch your every move

its funny that the guy showing me the place thought that was an INCENTIVE


more snow


more snow on bags


snow on KAGs


snow on baloons


snow on the turning lane


snow on pups


snow on boys


snow on doors


heres a dry pup for you: we had a dinner party sunday night with all the leftover deitch party food from the condo fridge it was awesome!


we fixed up our place and our art collection for it
framed the sean prison portrait, par exemple


free dinner party is the best kind
one man’s garbage…

dusty nozzling?
fascinating


coldest night of the year last night i swear

i think i may NOT go home to DC for inaugereggnog i dunno
the new york times keeps having headlines like “reconsidering going to the inauguration” or “inauguration fever explodes!” or “no room to see inauguration unless you are VIP”

the queen is indisposed today
the queen does not want to post blogs


the queen has no waterproof shoes and gets her socks wet


the queen misses patrick

her favourite courtesan


this is Bacaro for Kazumi welcome dinner with all girls
every photo of Bacaro looks like this:


i have like a hundred of these i mean the queen chicken has 100


the queen chicken finds the peasants revolting


the peasants are revolting!
yes they are aren’t they


aurel and i went to takahatchi on our date day
first we went to beacon’s closet and sold clothes and then bought crap we didnt need with the money
then we went to a bookstore then we went to takahatchi wait that is now ok now


this is sad: TWICE in my life i have bought this book, thinking vaguely that i was buying an important work of feminist literature, then discovering it was written by a gay dude and is about some chick struggling wtih Victorian social morees and an italian kiss in the violets.

of course the book i keep THINKING i am buying is of course “A Room of One’s Own”, and the fact that i have done this twice and thus have read this not terribly interesting book twice, is well humbling to say the least


the queen hates huble pie, the queen prefers sushi!


and sake lagoons


aurel and i then very ill-advisedly went from my house and induced euphoria to Santos burlesque tribute


it was kinda awesome and kinda way more than we bargained for


“keep it on”


Liz Renay tribute


“bawdy”


it reminds me of “Mutz Gone Nutz”


Slutz Gone Nutz


Rubenesque sluts gone nuts


ZAFTIG sluts gone nutz
aurel and i ran away to another party


this thing


jack walls dj’ed at bowery electric, i think the kickoff of his new party, and ryan hosted and lotsa people were there dancin


see?


rita ackermann looked really sexy i dont know if it comes across in these photos


she saw me taking photos of her so i stopped


jack was hiding behind the oddly centrally located big brick wall thing, playing odd disco and “hidden 70s”


sean and colin showed up
i told sean i missed patrick and he was like “so?”


fuck you sean! even though it is your birthday today so i guess i cant say this just now.. hmmm….


without patrick i am forced to make simple foods with instructions on the back of them


and walk the streets alone


its a long time till another holiday friends!


unless art shows are causes for celebration, then february is going to be hot potatoes!


heat up the bricks! ben jones on february 5th

these all came in a box from my parents, late christmas p’s that pat had apparently purloined


hot burlesque opening for Liz Renay last night


Art Production Fund temp space on wooster opened Girls in the Art World comedy that it was too crowded to see


we, deitch, apparently got the space next door to use as our showroom, a 6mil condo filled with deitch art. can someone get me a key to this place? i have about 100 “young collectors” i wanna take over there


dogs + racks. cuteoverload.com’s only concession to baser human needs


Bambi the Mermaid the Liz Renay


pat also got me an encouraging ball thing that just tells me i’m thin and pretty over and over
its like when girls got those barbies that said “boy math is hard” over and over


doesn’t help with the missing him part
it is snowing here and what a horrible thing to be a girl alone when its snowing!
